    Re: Standalone CNC Lathe Controller

    Which one did you get. Does it do mill and lathe functions.

    Looking at them online it seems to me that you can get them for either a lathe or mill but not both.

    Please tell me I'm wrong.

    Re: When will "acorn" release?

    Are you guys using the free software? it seems to be useless. The pro version $ 499.00 ?

    If they made it usable for a mill and lathe more would be interested. Having to install different software to use it on a lathe is not something people are interested in.

    Re: Chinese "standalone" CNC controller

    So you spend another $ 600.00 or so to have a controller for your lathe. Now you are at around $ 1300.00 plus shipping and before you know you are at $ 1500.00.

    Unfortunately none of the units mentioned here have a Lathe Mode, so how will you do thread cutting with any of them. They seem to be useful for milling machines and routers only.

    Re: Standalone CNC Lathe Controller

    Make sure that you can do threading with this controller. Many stand alone controllers don't. In that case what good is it?

    Have you tried Googling Machinekit, I don't think so.

    If you do you will find a lot of information on the subject.

    Re: X2 CNC with belt drive and Delrin bushings

    The higher the RPM of the stepper the less power you get from them.
    Bigger steppers might do it but you need the right drivers for them.
    Gecko claims their drivers work for any stepper.

    The motors you show are open to chips getting in. Have you built a covering for them and do they not overheat with a cover.
